Been using the flatpak version of hexchat that includes color emojis, but it doesn't handle plugins well due to flatpak.

That would be https://github.com/hexchat/hexchat/issues/2047

Anyway, I know that I sometimes see coloured emojis in my hexchat,
probably that just comes from the fonts though.

If anybody know how comes flatpak works any better, then please share
that with and I'll see if I can make the debian package do that as well
(best would be in a bug report).
